    Gardner Dozois

    Excalibur, Durandal, Tizona, Caladbolg, Skofnung, Balmung, Mech-kladenets, Al-Battar, Ame-no-Ohabari, Chandrahrasa... Longue est la liste des épées que les cultures du passé ont honorées au point de les nommer et de leur octroyer des pouvoirs surnaturels. L'une est capable de fendre en deux un chevalier et sa monture sous lui, l'autre trace des arcs-en-ciel dans les airs, une autre encore chante les hauts faits des héros qui l'ont portée. Attributs de pouvoir, elles scellent une alliance entre les hommes et la magie des dieux, forgeant une tradition dont Stormbringer, Andúril ou encore Aiguille sont les dignes héritières. C'est à elles qu'aujourd'hui les autrices et les auteurs de cette anthologie rendent hommage.

  • Qu'ils soient dignes de confiance, retors ou avides de pouvoir, les sorciers façonnent la magie à leur image. Parfois dangereux, souvent fascinants, ils intimident toujours les foules. Mais, peu importe leurs pouvoirs, ils ne sont pas sans failles. Des magiciens bienveillants aux sorciers les plus machiavéliques, Gardner Dozois a rassemblé dans cette anthologie dix-sept textes des plus talentueux auteurs de la fantasy contemporaine.
    Envoûteurs, chamanes, enchanteurs, devins et invocateurs... Découvrez le quotidien de ces personnages hors du commun qui n'utilisent pas toujours leurs talents à bon escient. Avec : K. J. Parker, Robin Hobb, John Crowley, Matthew Hugues, YsabeauS. Wilce, Rachel Pollack, Eleanor Arnason, Tim Powers, Liz Williams, Garth Nix, Elizabeth Bear, Lavie Tidhar, Greg Van Eekhout, George R. R. Martin, Aandy Duncan, Kate Elliott, Scott Lynch.

  • « Un jour, les extraterrestres débarquèrent, comme tout le monde l'avait prévu. Tombés d'un ciel bleu candide au beau milieu d'une froide et claire journée de novembre, ils étaient quatre, quatre vaisseaux extraterrestres à la dérive tels des flocons annonciateurs de la chute de neige qui menaçait déjà depuis une semaine.
    Le continent américain abordait le jour durant leur manoeuvre, aussi se posèrent-ils là : un dans la vallée de la Delaware vingt-cinq kilomètres au nord de Philadelphie, un dans l'Ohio, un dans une région désolée du Colorado, et un (pour un motif inconnu) dans un champ de canne des abords de Caracas, au Venezuela... » Quand le Stephen King de « Stand by Me » rencontre le Ted Chiang de « L'histoire de ta vie ».
    Un récit d'invasion extraterrestre vue par les yeux d'un enfant. Le récit poignant, magistral, d'un coeur simple face à l'indicible...

  • La première fois que Joseph Farber vit Liraun Jé Genawen, il la trouva pleine de mystères. C'était durant l'Alàntene, « la Pâque du solstice d'hiver, l'Ouverture-des- Portes-de-Dûn » sur la planète Lisle. Pour l'extraterrestre, Farber bravera tous les interdits et tabous, jusqu'à se faire modifier génétiquement pour pouvoir s'unir à elle. Et pourtant, comme toutes les plus grandes histoires d'amour, leur idylle connaîtra une fin tragique...

    Nouvelliste et anthologiste inséparable de son complice George R.R. Martin, Gardner Dozois est un auteur rare. L'Étrangère, fable crépusculaire et mélancolique, inscrit ses héros dans la grande tradition des amants maudits.

  • Le Nouveau Space Opera a hérité de son prédécesseur un amour démesuré pour les intrigues extravagantes, remplies de vaisseaux interstellaires, de mondes exotiques et de créatures étranges. Mais il fait preuve d'une rigueur scientifique inédite, d'une conscience sociale, politique et philosophique plus aiguë, et d'une exubérance stylistique qui marquent une rupture par rapport au space opera « à l'ancienne ».
    Si certaines de ces 18 nouvelles inédites sont dues à la plume d'auteurs déjà bien installés au firmament de la SF tels que Robert Silverberg, Dan Simmons, Gregory Benford ou Peter F. Hamilton, on trouvera également dans ce recueil des noms moins familiers en France, comme ceux de Tony Daniel ou Mary Rosenblum. Toutes ces histoires se déroulent dans des univers qui recèle encore de nombreux mystères à élucider, comme un gigantesque terrain de jeu à l'échelle de nos désirs.
